The Have Been Weighed in the Balance, and are found Wanting.
The Have Been Weighed in the Balance, and are found Wanting.
Flagelantes inv.t.
Pub.d March 1809 by Walker No. 7 Cornhill.
Etching with fine hand-colouring, platemark 250 x 350mm (9¾ x 13¾") very large margins. Diagonal crease.
Large pair of scales balance on one side by Mary Anne Clarke, supported by Gwyllym Lloyd Wardle, and other the other side by three lawyers and General Clavering (with Spencer Perceval adding papers to the scales). The beam is supported by the duke of York, standing on the back of William Adam, while John Bull stands behind. Satire relating to the cash-for-commissions scandal involving Clarke and the Duke of York, and specifically on the votes exonerating him. Wardle brought the motion for the removal of the Duke on the grounds that he was aware Clarke (his mistress) had been selling army commissions. This was defeated by Perceval's amendment; eventually Perceval's resolution acquitting the Duke of personal corruption was carried. Clarke calls for the John Bull, carrying the 'Vox Populi', to lend his weight, reflecting public opinion. York did in fact resign the same month this print was published- despite the motion passed by the Commons, this was the only way to avoid a renewal of the allegations. Etching by 'Flagelantes', which BM Satires believes to be a pseudonym for Charles Williams, although many of the attributions to Williams in BM Satires are now questioned.
